    “Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in,” wrote Henry David Thoreau in Walden. Which is all well and good when you live by yourself in a (not-so-) remote cabin in the woods with no day job and no steady obligations, nothing to do but grow your Transcendental facial scruff and compose exhaustive lists of how much barley you harvest.

    So many of us are attracted to the idea of writing in seclusion for months at a time, no clock or calendar, no interruptions, no Google alerts or memos from the boss. But more often than not, the reality is more Overlook Hotel than Walden Pond. Someone—maybe Faulkner, maybe Nabokov—once said “Kill your darlings,” but he wasn’t talking about chasing your family members with an axe.

    Anyway, who can afford to just shuck it all and go scribble away in the wilderness? We’ve got bills to pay, yo. Mouths to feed. Errands to run.

    With all that in mind, WBN coach and consultant Emily Gray Tedrowe offers a Time Management Questionnaire, thirteen questions to “get you thinking honestly about how you spend your time so that you can identify time that can be used for writing.” What is your morning routine? What kind of commute do you have? Are you energized at night or do you flop on the sofa to watch your programs?

    The answers to these and other questions should allow you to identify potential free time, and Emily’s 4-step tool will teach you to use that free time to your advantage.
